Pillow Swap Part 2-quilting & envelope back

ENVELOPE PILLOW BACK–overlapping back closure (no zipper!!)

Each back piece will be the same width as the front side and 1/2 of the length plus 4 inches to account for seams and overlap (the envelope part.)  Sound confusing?  Just keep reading!!  There’s pictures!!

For example, the pillow insert is 16 inches so half of that is 8 inches + 4= 12 inches.  Each of the back pieces will be 16 inches wide and 12 inches tall.

Attach each back piece to Pillow Cover. Make a quilt sandwich.

NOTE:  Cut batting 1” shorter on each end.  This will result in less bulk when edges are turned under for a finished edge.  Quilt entire piece, making both back & front of pillow quilted!
Turn under edges on Pillow Back & hem.  With right sides together, overlap back pieces onto front.  Sew seams together.  Turn right side out through envelope back. You’re done!!




Envelope Back:  Nice, clean finish on the back!
